    Andrew,

     This is a great suggestion and we would look into this.

    Regards,

    I second this suggestions.  Only seeing a chassis in the rack view isn't very useful and showing the blade names in a tooltip would be a great improvement.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We have now added functionality in the rack view to show device details in hover over. This also shows links to all blade devices in that chassis.

    You can read more detail at the blog post labeled easier data center planning with release v4.2.0.
    Update file is available at device42 update page.

    This looks great. Is it possible to make the font size customized or split the data in two columns. If we have a 16 or 32 blade chassi in the bottom of the rack the tooltip is not able to show them all, it's cut off at the bottom of the screen.

    We have reproduced this issue and hope to have a fix ready for the next release (4.2.1).
